The Winnipeg Arts Council will unveil four new public artworks by Indigenous artists at a free celebration on Friday, September 28 from 3:30-6:30pm in Air Canada Park on the corner of Portage Avenue and Carlton Street. All are welcome to join for ART, MUSIC & FOOD to celebrate THIS PLACE on Treaty 1 Territory & the Homeland of the Métis Nation. Hosted by comedian Gerry Barrett, the event will mark the opening of new artworks by local Indigenous artists Kenneth Lavallee and Julie Nagam, as well as by Rolande Souliere and the team of Rebecca Belmore and Osvaldo Yero. Celebrations will include traditional and contemporary music and dance performances by Leonard Sumner, The Help Wanteds, Asham Stompers, Nikki Komaksiutiksak, and Ray (Co-Co) Stevenson & The Walking Wolf Singers, as well as speeches by the artists themselves.

This major public art project builds on efforts to create awareness of the rich Indigenous cultures, peoples and heritage that are at the roots of our territory, city and province. THIS PLACE on Treaty 1 Territory & the Homeland of the Métis Nation was commissioned by the Winnipeg Arts Council through the City of Winnipeg’s Public Art Policy and with the participation of the Government of Canada.
